CBC apologizes

The CBC is apologizing for leaving Port Royal out of its docudrama “Canada: The Story of Us”.

The first episode asserted the first permanent Euiropean settlement in Canada was Quebec City while Port Royal in the Annapolis Valley was settled three years earlier.

CBC spokesman Chuck Thompson issued a statement saying people are bound to have different points of view on Canada’s history, but the national broadcaster didn’t intend to offend anyone and is open to feedback. He added they won’t be changing the show but they are planning to host live digital conversations about it.
